The Body Language of Kristen Stewart who plays Bella Swan in “Twilight” and “New Moon”
Does anything strike you about Kristen Stewart, the actress that plays Bella Swan in “Twilight” and “New Moon?” It’s such a rare event in the body language world to see such a clear portrayal of the type of nonverbal language that we’re always referring to, especially for its category. While looking cool, dominant and in control is ubiquitous across Hollywood, looking timid, shy and out of place is much more rare, and that is exactly what is shown here. Take a close look at the images. In image #1 we see a prominent “fig leaf” posture where the hands are placed over the midsection or genitals signifying shame. Imagine if she were nude, disrobed, and put in front of an audience. This is exactly the first posture those who lack confidence will do. Her hands are also interlaced which also shows negative thoughts. In image #2 she is half displaying confident ready language with her hands on her hips, probably trying to look cool, but her other hand is hidden in her pockets showing hidden emotions. I would imagine she felt it would come across as far too shy to put both hands in her pockets, or even duck out of the spotlight altogether, but those are her primary desires as depicted by her body language. Image #3 is an alternate angle. Also note her despondent face. She’s obviously not impressed.
Through the magic of the internet, we don’t have to guess about her history, or her filmography. A quick search tells us she’s a fairly “green”, actress who’s been mostly out of the spotlight. I would guess that she’s probably introverted and likes to keep to herself. Perhaps we have some real fans out there who can find out. Regardless of what she’s hiding, it’s obvious by her body language that she lacks the mental fortitude to be subjected to the media spotlight.
